Angry Can anybody help me open picture files?

I recently noticed that i cant open a lot of my old picture files, all the viewers i have say unregognised format / cant determine type etc.

These are around 4-6 years old and are JPEG images.


Please help, as I have hundreds of old pics like this i dont want to lose.

I cant attach an example, as it says the file is too big or the file is not a valid jpg file (its jpeg).

But if anybody things they can solve this, i would be happy to email them one direct.

Thanks

Can you zip the file and attach it? It would help if everyone could see it.
